Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $800K in Scotts Valley, CA.
Larry is very personable and professional. He gives you his personal cell number and responds to texts at any hour. He was able to explain the complicated details of buying a home in layman's terms and really help simplify the process. Along with Larry comes a great team of expert lenders. All my friends and family were shocked at how fast we bought our new home and sold our other. Many thanks to Larry and his team for working so efficiently.

Larry was a joy to work with. He was very patient and found me the perfect house. He coached me through the lending process and was there for me every step of the way... all the way up to the final sign off. We had some septic issues that he helped work through and got me a huge credit. We searched high and low in a very competitive buying situation and found a house with great potential in San Lorenzo Valley.... it was challenging because a normal house is hard to find here.. Larry was great. I wish I could buy another house so I would have an opportunity to work with Larry again.
As first time homebuyers, we were very appreciative of Larry's patience, knowledge and guiding hand. Larry took the time to explain the process of buying a home and made sure we were educated through the process.
I really appreciated how quick he was to respond to emails and phone calls. And with how aggressive the market was in Santa Cruz, he was always ready to move quickly and he made sure we were, too.
I think the thing I appreciate most about Larry was his concern for our well being. I never felt pressured to buy and I thoroughly enjoyed each encounter with Larry. He got us into contract twice at the price we wanted with an incredibly aggressive market nipping at our heels and I believe that has to do with his knowledge of the market and knowing when to move. I highly recommend Larry for your real-estate needs!
I am very glad that I had Larry to guide me through my first real estate purchase. He was very willing and able to explain how the whole process works and to get me up to speed. Throughout the entire process Larry was always quick to notify me of new potential properties, and always worked to get necessary paperwork done in a timely manner.
He also showed diligence when researching various aspects of the potential properties to make sure there would be no surprises. It was very obvious that his concern was not to make a quick sale, but rather to make sure I got what I was looking for!
In summary: He told me what was going on, I told him what I was looking for, and he helped me get it. I couldn't have asked for more. I would definitely highly recommend Larry to anyone in the market, especially a first timer!
What I respect the most in working with Larry is his genuine concern for finding properties that meet my needs...he truly listens to me. He is not some schlocky real estate agent that just wants the sale. He provides me with the pros and cons of each property and has been very helpful in explaining the process/steps I need to take as we progress towards the end goal.
We really loved working with Larry. Communication is very important to us, but it and he was excellent in getting back to us quickly. He always kept us up to date on everything we needed to know. We will definitely use him in the future. He is very friendly and works hard for his clients.
I can't overstate the excellent experience I had working with Larry in searching for Real Estate in the Santa Cruz area. In the end, I decided to shift my focus to Maui and wished I could have taken advantage of his services there. His knowledge, energy and enthusiasm combined with his soft sell approach was truly appreciated and I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking their ideal property. Plus, no one knows the secret, off-road biking spots like he does!

Larry is terrific. What I like best is that he doesn't "paint by numbers" when it comes to working with his clients. Some agents will give everyone the same sales pitch... the one they learned in real estate class. But Larry genuinely wants the best for his clients, and he looks hard to find what will make them happy. I also like that he's very involved with the community, including our local Rotary club. In fact, he was a star performer from the day he joined. On the personal side, he's also a conscientious family man and a good guy to have as a friend.

"We greatly appreciate the support we got from Larry Fogelquist in selling our property in Scotts Valley and buying our new one in Campbell. Larry was very patient to walk us through the understanding of our housing needs and offered advice in defining them when we needed his opinion. Larry is the full package of understanding the technical aspects of the transactions that he can explain in different ways that we both understood, from providing detailed time-line, to a periodic update and advice into how to negotiate offers based into how the situations were evolving. Larry took initiatives that you rarely see in an real state agent viewing offering buyers definite insides about our property we were selling and researched in high level of detail the properties we were interested in buying.
Larry is objective, honest, organized, open to communicate and fully able to represent our needs as buyers & sellers. He is strong in understanding the real state business as well as very analytical and organized."
